Been coming here since 1980 and have loved it every time. Service is fantastic, ambience buzzing, and the food always takes centre stage. Come here hungry because you will leave full! Always a treat, perfectly cooked delicious, quality food. Love it!

Service is very good, that would get a minimum of 4 stars, I have been twice now in the last 6 months and didn't write a review the first time as it was disappointing and with so many people seemingly in love with it here I thought perhaps a bad night. Starter was not too bad, and then I had... More

We have visited this area at least twice a year for the last 5 years and this restaurant has been recommended a few time as something special so on our first night and our friend's anniversary we thought we give it a go. The service was very friendly but nothing to make this stand out from others. The starters were... More

The menu remains the same however specials are always available and Pepe is there to offer his advice if you are in any doubt. We started with the melon in port... More

8 of us visited this little gem on the last night of a hen do. We loved every minute of our visit. We were treated like royalty by the amazing staff and owner. The waiters were really knowledgeable on the gluten free choices which was super helpful. The atmosphere, food, desserts and sangria were all amazing. Their attention to detail... More

As far as I am aware this wonderful family restaurant has been around for over 20 odd years . The owner treats you like an old friend and nothing is too hard to make and at a very far price

This eatery hasn`t changed or dropped its standards since our last visit several years ago. The staff were attentive and helpful. Starters were a lovely scrambled egg and ham and asparagos dish and melon with prawns. All were excellent. The mains were lamb shoulder, fillet steak and chicken curry . The whole party had an enjoyable meal.

We have dined at Playa Bella on numerous occasions and it occurred to me just now that I have never reviewed it. Saying that, I haven't reviewed most of the restaurants we have dined in, probably because of time! My most recent visit was on Monday this week and on this occasion I was dining alone. As always it was... More

This was our second time of joining friends here for dinner in the past year. Never disappointed. You must have a reservation. The restaurant is relatively small and tables are always full. We were seated immediately and our drink order taken. Drinks appeared promptly, as did the garlic bread and olives. We ordered appetizers as well as entrees (extensive list... More
